Revised Training Module for JE Electrical and SE Electrical.

Printer-friendly version
  • The details and sequence of the training programme and The Revised Training Modules for Electrical Department is given below.
  • The institutional training for electrical supervisors would be shifted from Centralised Electrical Training Institute, Thakurli to Indian Railway Institute of Electrical Engineering, Nasik in due course. However for the present Centralised  Engineering  Training Institute, Thakurli would continue to meet specialized and need based training requirements of Zonal Railways.
  • A 52 week induction programme with institutional training in two phases training has been approved for all categories of directly recruited Supervisors. The induction programme includes 8 weeks of field training and 14 weeks of  Attachment/on the job experience.
  • Between the two phases of institutional training, the trainee Supervisors would be sent for field training/field visits wherein they should be given exposure to practical work at various field units where these candidates are likely to be posted on completion of their training programme. The detailed programme of field training should be given to the candidates before completion of the first phase of institutional training. Each Zonal Railway would nominate a SAG officer as nodal training manager in Headquarters Office who shall monitor the programme of induction training for Supervisors.
  • The course content for General and Subsidiary Rules training for Electrical Supervisors would be developed by respective ZRTIs. This course shall be conducted before sending trainee Supervisors for Attachment/on the job experience.
  • Final phase of training shall comprise of on the job attachment wherein after completion of institutional and field training, the trainee supervisors shall be posted in the field units allocated to them by the concerned Railways. During this Period, the trainees would perform like a Supervisor working on an active assignment but would not be given independent charge.
  • The programme for this attachment/on the job experience would be framed by the Officer in charge of the Division/extra Divisional Field Units where these Supervisors are to be finally posted.
  • The refresher course and promotional course for Electrical Supervisors shall stand merged and shall be delivered as a refresher course once in three years. This refresher course shall be delivered in an e-learning module which would include a component of institutional training for one week at the respective Zonal Electrical Training Schools. The details for e-learning module shall be worked out by Indian Railways Institute of Electrical Engineering (IRIEEN), Nasik in consultation with Zonal Railways.
  • The lesson plans for the course content given in composite training module shall be developed by  IRIEEN, Nasik/Centralised Electrical Training Institute, Thakurli.
